Lawyer, Blogger Reach Settlement Over Defamation Claims

The Ohio attorney who sued a blogger who made what he considered defamatory statements about him during the course of his representation of the family of a teenager who had run away after converting to Christianity from Islam has dropped his lawsuit against the blogger. Omar Tarazi and Pamela Geller have agreed to a settlement. Ms. Geller will remove the statements, which Mr. Tarazi objected suggested he is linked to terrorism, from her blog, and he will abandon his litigation. Ms. Geller is claiming vindication at her blog here, as is Mr. Tarazi at his blog here. More here from the Washington Post via the AP.
